When I took the dog out at 7am, there was 4" on the ground. When out to find a belt for the snow blower, got back at 8:30 and there was 10" on the ground. It has picked up in intensity since. They were calling 10-14" here, I suspect it will end up quite a bit higher. There is some serious moisture coming straight up the NE Extension, right to me :lol: Good thing I like the snow.

We are between snow falls... the first one lasted all night and left us with 10 to 12 inches. We are told to expect round two about 3pm. They say that will be icy rain and sleet. Strange, I thought those were the same thing. MMMM... We'll see how it all works out. Lisa

Yeah, I can't stand to watch the weather wienies on the Weather Channel anymore; telling me how to dress before I go out, how to drive, when to stay home, giving a name to every snowflake that falls. And of course every other breath it's climate change/global warming. I just go to NOAA if I want a weather guess. Had 14" this morning when I started plowing. Still coming down pretty good. Light, fluffy stuff though.

I hear ya - It's absolutely ridiculous! Can't even watch any of them anymore. :roll: People are so friggin helpless these days ....

We've got close to 2" down so far, and it's coming down like hellfire out there now. At least an inch an hour, and seems to be getting heavier by the second. Real light, fluffy, fine flakes - makes it easy to manage at least.

Panic has hit for some & will hit for others as thousands already are without power & will probably be joined by thousands more,no fun with the extreme cold we've had.We still have ice & snow on trees from the past week end storm,8-10" of new snow with near blizzard conditions at times,with the heavy snow fall & high winds.Easy to make fun of others panicking,but we could be in that same situation for the next 24hrs. Lisa,there is a big difference between sleet & freezing rain, sleet will generally fall off the trees & power lines,freezing rain builds on trees & power lines,sleet is the better option. For those who enjoy the snow your day has arrived,we will try to tolerate it the best we can,we will try to keep warm,try to maitain our sanity while tossing logs onto the owb in these brutal conditions,everyone enjoy your indoor coal heat !! :cry2: We have found AccuWeather to be very accurate for our area,& if they remind me to be safe out in the storm ,I don't mind the reminder.

I have no sympathy. Anyone that lives in the north should expect this weather, and anyone in the south should still be prepared for anything.

How did our ancestors ever get by without government and the news stations holding their hands? :roll:

That's the problem with society today. If you prepare like you SHOULD, people call you a crazy right-wing "prepper". At least I won't be pulling out my gun just to get a gallon of gas ... :lol:

No sympathy,well i feel sorry for you,Smitty, & i am not expecting anything from our America destroying government either,but to say you have no sympathy for those without power & possible have no heat. From what i have read on this forum a man with sympathy who is no longer living had sympathy for you,or did you forget ?? Just take a stroll down to your basement & look at the boiler setting there keeping you warm,a gift from God !!!

I agree with you Smitty. Live in the north, it is your duty and responsibility to be prepared for snow and its consequences. Otherwise you're a dumbass and deserve what you get.

I feel sorry for anybody that gets caught unawares, lot of folks around here can't afford cable or satellite, most likely stock up as far as they can afford but the winter we have been having it's rough. Candles are fire hazards but it's the best many can do, driving by some places you can tell that's about all they have, I went in to check on the one lady up the road, she had a wood burner for heat & was basically staying downstairs all winter. I took a shopping list & picked up a few items for her & then brought more wood in but she wouldn't leave or call anyone she was fine. If I don't see any foot prints by the mail box or car tracks I'll stop again. She has been here all her life & says she'll die here as well & there are many just like her, I would say to stop by & ask if there are some near by that you know of.

* ACCUMULATIONS...SNOW ACCUMULATION OF 14 TO 20 INCHES...ALONG WITH
AROUND A TENTH OF AN INCH OF ICE.


Like the deficit, just keeps climbing. 2 feet before it's over I will bet. So much for 8" as predicted. Should have kept my Cat D8 cable blade, I sold it for less than a high end snowblower and right now that was a big mistake. There is a Cat D6 9U calling my name and everytime I call it the price goes down...... hmmmmmmmm. Wet clutch too and very cheap ...... I know, I will buy it with my tax refund .... hmmmm .... that's right I did not get a tax refund. :x
